    We love signing a player on the back of a purple patch, Nick Blackman all over again.

    I hope we stick with him. He really needs help and I know this club isn’t a charity but I hate to see people with issues disregarded. I’d like to see him see out his contract at the very least - really hope he can sort himself out and get back on the pitch.

    Investigation is ongoing so no reason to jump all over the guy without knowing any details.
    Rumours he overslept, if so he isnt the first and wont be the last. Of course its not great but not worth being lambasted and labelled a bad egg etc.
    Who knows why he may have overslept if that is the reason. Could be due to late night partying or it could be because his daughter was ill and had him up all night, none of us know so thats why the club is investigating. Could all be looked into and he has a legitimate reason for whatever he is meant to have done.
    Lets just ease off a guy who is trying to turn his career around and has had mental health issues previously.

    Chelsea fans clapped it yesterday. Presumably they had heard what happened at Millwall.
    We should do the same. Active support for the message.

    'Rooney says booing of players taking a knee 'disappointing and upsetting'
    "To hear that is very disappointing and upsetting for a lot of people," said Rooney, whose side won the game 1-0.
    "I'm pleased with how my team dealt with that. They've had to put that to the back of their minds for the 90 minutes but I'm sure it's something they were thinking about."
    Fed up with excuses being made. Everyone knows what 'taking a knee' means in anti-racist terms. Anyone who 'boos' the players involved is being racist.

    I was In, now I'm out, but I feel dirty for feeling that way.
    This isnt Phil's fault, I'm sure had he been allowed we would have Sam Lammers up front, Kadioglu on the wing, Van Ginkel in the centre etc etc. And I dont doubt for a second that when he joined the club he was probably promised these types of players once our investment rocked up.

    Dale The Ram reacted to Jimbo Ram in New Manager   
    I am not convinced the current squad, those currently available at least, are good enough. Having to play 4 or 5 academy players each game, the majority of whom are not quite ready, highlights this. I don’t think a new Manager would get much more out of them. I just hope things will improve with Waggers, Bielik and Lawrence back along with a fully fit Holmes and a couple of final additions to the squad. I am happy to give Cocu time to see if things then improve, maybe until Christmas, then make a decision. We surely can’t keep having a new Manager in every season can we 🤔

    Dale The Ram reacted to CocuBarmyArmy in Jason Knight (in his proper position)   
    The lads quality and I think he often gets over looked by our fans. Imo I think he’s actually our best young player, he runs through walls for the team and scores a fair bit as-well. One of our best performances last season was the 2-1 win over Charlton where he scored the brace. I understand the Max Bird love in, the lads quality, but isn’t it time that we gave Knight a go in his proper position? He’s a bit more direct and I think that’s what we need at the minute, I know it’s needs must right now but hopefully he’ll get a chance at centre mid when we get the new wingers in (touch wood).

    I would LOVE this - I really would. He's exactly the type of player that we're desperate for, someone who can stretch the field and create space. I think he technically has some limitations, but anyone that watched the game on Saturday can see that it's not necessarily tidy footballers we're short on - it's strong runners and players to put the defence on their heels.

    There’s a player in there. We’ve witnessed that first hand. If the wages are sensible, I don’t see any issue in us giving him a chance.

    Could it be Derby's third kit colour palette ?? Found it on the web with a directory reference to Iconix, which I think is the European arm of Umbro. Or maybe their design house?
    And (sadly for B4) this does suggest a hint of 'PINK' to me!

    Dale The Ram reacted to Andrew3000 in Super- fan Chan-young Lee   
    Just wanted to celebrate this kid who has introduced himself in the  rams around the world section of this forum. Many will know of his super-quick goal clips provided on Twitter, this South Korean lad appeared recently on Rams Review Podcast (where he politely tolerated being called Lee the whole time, which is his surname/family name)
    Somewhat bizzarely, he became a passionate Ram since the play-off final against QPR (must be drawn towards injustice and tragedy) and gets up at 3 or 4am to watch matches.
    He also writes pieces promoting our club in South Korea.  I'm not on Twitter but I'm sure many have welcomed him already. Hopefully we can reach out and help him visit Pride Park one day. I think he will feature more on ramsreview pod so a relationship is developing there.  Hope the club are aware too and might assist.

    Good god no not Jordan Rhodes. Another one where some can't separate 'used to score loads of goals in poor teams' from 'used to be a great player'
    Might as well bring Darren Bent out of retirement for all the use his general play is.

    by far one of the most tenacious and skill full players I’ve seen has the heart of a lion and as Neil warnock would say ‘never shirks a fricking tackle’ one of Derby’s players of the years imo. Scored some important goals and very effective at driving at defences. Can’t wait to see him in his proper position

    Exactly might aswell sign up for walking football. Knight and Lawrence offer us no width whatsoever we will again play like this season not stretching teams. I think bogle has been limited aswell going forward because he has no player in front of him to drag a player with him. Everytime he gets it out wide there isn't a player from our team 10 yards close to him infront of him yet has 2 people on him straight away. Even a prime cafu would struggle to take on 2 players every 2 minutes
